Tech Tidbits

"Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important." - Bill Gates

When Can We Meet?

I will be at your school at least twice monthly. Feel free to email to schedule individual time, or drop into one of my classes during your planning period.

I will be at JCBooth all day on Thursday, September 10th. Please let me know how I can help you out.

Easy to Implement Tech Tools

Whether you use technology in your classroom on a daily basis or you have never opened a Chromebook before, these are some of the tools that you can use with your students to increase student engagement.
Nearpod

Easy to use and some ready-made guided presentations. Works GREAT with a chromebook.

Kahoot

This is a great, easy to use review game. Works great with a chromebook.

Symbaloo

Great way to visually organize websites and online information.

How Can Instructional Technology Help?

I am thrilled to be able to spend time at your school! As an Instructional Technology Specialist, my primary goal is to serve as a resource for teachers who are looking to embed technology into their daily lessons. It is my goal to help you in any possible way. If you would like some specifics of how we can work together, I can:


  • meet with you after school or during planning to work on lesson plans
  • teach a sample lesson to your students using the Nexus Tablets or Chromebooks
  • observe your class and then offer suggestions on how to best embed technology
  • provide hands-on assistance in your classroom
